Excellent product. I was looking for a portable camera with wide range of shooting regimes. This is the best I found!
It's a great combination of portability and sophisticated instruments. It is not a secret that automatic regime does not always provide possibility for making good photos. Meantime, many people avoid using manual regime due to its complicity. This product's manual regime is simple. Especially excited with night and artificial light shooting which with automatic exposure makes amazing photos.
I bought this camera because I needed a decent point and shoot camera at an affordable price. The one I bought was "used" but looked new. It didn't even have the (very common) scratches on the front from the sliding cover.
Here's what I found:
Excellent Nikon quality. Fairly simple to use. Great looking pics (I was amazed the ones it took at night). Large display! Light weight. Buy a screen protector, they are a cheap accessory which will keep your camera's display screen scratch free.
Actually I liked this camera so much, I bought a second one and gave it to my parents.
picture quality is great!! touchscreen is a great feature. I've always owned Nikon products & this beauty takes the cake.
This camera is Awesome!! Takes great pictures for a point and shoot camera!! This is my 3rd purchase from this seller and have been more than pleased with all my purchases. All the pictures from these Nikon camera's have been top notch. I am an avid photography buff and my weakness is great cameras.You cannot go wrong with this camera. It is easy to use.
I love this camera, it is easy to use and small enough to carry in my purse, and the size is why I purchased it. I do suggest though buying a camera case and screen protectors to go along with it. The screen scratches very easily. The picture quality is amazing to me. Took pics at a soccer game in bright sunshine and a race track at night and they turned out great! This is the best camera I have ever owned!
I bought my Nikon S80 as a Factory Refurbished model. However, it looked brand new and the quality of the pictures were as great as every Nikon I owned before it.
With features like the HD Video Recorder and the HDMI out, it is the go to camera to capture those great moments to watch later on your HDTV.
The OLED screen displays extraordinary color. Also, all the camera's functions and menus are all operated through the touch-screen. Given that the only button on the camera is the one that takes the pictures, the Nikon S80 is extremely simple for new users to operate.
Overall, the I am very, very pleased with my decision to buy the S80. The size, quality, price and features included made buying this camera an easy choice.
If you can keep your "paws" away from the lens, and don't rest your finger on the shutter release, the Nikon Coolpix S 80, is a terrific little (very little) point and shoot camera.
The large touch screen is easy to use, a breeze to set up, and the icons are easilly understood.
The image stabilization is an absolute necessity.
The auto mode is very good for most situations.
I especially like how the little Nikon focuses, its wide-telephoto settings, and the red-eye elimination feature.
You have quite a bit of creativity, as the camera allows you exposure compensation and speed up to 6400.
You'll have to clean the touch screen frequently to remove fingerprints. (The User's Manual DVD does not recommend using a stylus or screen protector. And, it would be hard to find a 3.5" screen protector, anyway).
Of course, the battery isn't inexpensive, but it provided a lot of exposures at 16:9 (default).
Be extremely careful not to let grit and sand get between the front of the camera and the lens and flash. The surface will be marred.
The camera is an excellant. This is my third camera that I have purchase from this company and they really stand behind their products. I have purchased 3 cameras,s and always wind up giving them away to family for an updated product when available and they all love their camera,s. And they always stand by their warranties with no quibbles; and even once when my warrenty was up and a week later the camera malfunction; they still took care of it under warramty; now thats what I call first class service.

A great little pocket cam , ideal for hiking & and any situation that a big SLR is too cumbersome for. Easy to use ntuitive functions, large AMOLED bright screen.Only minor concern is that the screen is flush with cam body, so it will easily scratch if laid down . 4 small raised nubs at corners would have made it perfect.
Camera is great,has a very nice focus,pictures are wonderful,great zoom,easy to use,very nice apierance.
